    I actually like the kid from ECU...he runs strong. Obviously Stewart is a great back so he's not going to stick around, but you've got 10 runningbacks going in 2 rounds...I'd be shocked.

      Considering that a couple of unexpected players are entering (Felix Jones and James Davis), I would now push Ray Rice to round 3. But James Davis I will stick with. But I would be very happy with Ray Rice in round 3.

      Best Backs Value (for us)...

      Round 1- Rashard Mendenhall, RB Illinois
      Round 2- James Davis, RB Clemson
      Round 3- Ray Rice

      Johnson has not proven he can carry the load and while he runs hard he has a slight build like Norwood. Norwood also runs hard but his build does not allow his body to hold up.

          He's impressive, but I don't think that it really matters...its what can he do in the pros, I don't think he'll be a back that demands a high round pick...because of the plethora of backs in this draft...to have 10 backs go in the top 3 rounds would mean that 1/3 of the teams in the league saw that they needed a starting runningback. You don't go in the top 3 rounds if you don't figure to get some very heavy rotation.

            Answering the original question...at the moment, we are pretty far. We dont have a legit GM, HC, the chances of our DC and OC leaving are high, no QB, lots of holes in the OL, and some issues with our best player.

            This offseason is huge. Monumental.

              A 3rd round runningback is generally a backup. Considering the amount of injuries to runningbacks there will be plenty of need. I would say...(must be declared)


              1. Darren McFadden, RB Arkansas
              2. Rashard Mendenhall, RB Illinois
              3. Felix Jones, RB Arkansas
              4. Jamal Charles, RB Texas
              5. James Davis, RB Clemson
              6. Chris Johnson, RB East Carolina
              7. Ray Rice, RB Rutgers
              8. Tashard Choice, RB Georgia Tech.
              9. Mike Hart, RB Michigan
              10. Dantrell Savage, RB Oklahoma State

              Although Stewart is likely to declare, I could easily see Rice go in round 2 or high in 3. Some teams (Atlanta) do not need runners like Jones, Johnson, or Charles. They need workhorses and players like Rice and Hart offer that.

              I can see Hart (and Savage) going later than round 3, but not Rice and Davis. Just my opinion.
